Location: 132 Hawkes Ave., Ossining
Description: This hilltop home in New Castle once belonged to the late philanthropist and environmentalist David Swope. Accordingly, the grounds feature beautifully maintained gardens and landscaping, along with some truly awe-inspiring views of the Hudson River.
Six bedrooms and 4.2 baths ensure all your guests will be quite comfortable, even more so with the addition of a full second kitchen, ostensibly for catering but also if you just need a place to stash your secret ice cream. Other compound features include a two-bedroom caretaker’s apartment with private entrance, a detached three-car garage, and a two-story barn. Indoor and outdoor pools make this a swim fan’s dream come true.
Asking price: $2,200,000
Selling points: Tons of space, indoors and out; with some particularly attractive scenery always visible from the numerous patios, terraces, and oversized windows.
Downside: Maybe not the best place if you get vertigo.
Listing agent: Nancy Kennedy, Houlihan Lawrence
